			<SetParam target="NotesIniGrid" ColumnID="NI1" Value="YtriaLastOpenServerName"/>
			<SetParam field="FilePath" value="D:\scanEZ-Last_Open_Server.html"/>
			<SetParam field="ExportType" value="HTML"/>
			<SetParam field="selectedrowsonly" value="True"/>
		<Sort ColumnID="NI1" Ascending="True"/>

			<SetParam field="ExportType" value="HTML"/>
			<SetParam field="SelectedRowsOnly" value="False"/>
		<New Name="Test" value="added"/>
		<Export FilePath="D:\MyNotes2.ini"/>

In the script above, the action NotesIni will be launched, opening the Notes.ini Editor on the local notes.ini file. The entry matching the value of " YtriaLastOpenServerName" will be selected and exported to an html file named "scanEZ-Last_Open_Server.html". ColumnID "NI1" will be sorted in ascending order and then filtered to contain only the entries that begin with "y". All remaining lines will be selected and this data exported to a second html file named " scanEZ-NotesIni_All_Y.html". A new entry named "Test" will then be added to the notes.ini file; it's value will be set to "added". The new resulting notes.ini file will be exported using the file path D:\MyNotes2.ini.
